16th February Meeting - History of the World in 100 objects & pancake supper

Our February meeting speaker will talk about the History of the world in 100 Objects - a joint project between the British Musuem and BBC Radio 4 from another of our multi-talented members Pam an archaelogist by background though now working on this project at the British Museum. Pam says Archaeology is less Indiana Jones & more mud & backache. Come for an insiders view of how they chose the objects for the programme and how museum objects can be used to tell a variety of stories. Find out more about the project and how to get involved at www.bbc.co.uk/ahistoryoftheworld

We also had an offer from our friends at St George's Bloomsbury to join their Shrove Tuesday Pancake supper. We said Yes please. So members & visitors if you are planning to come on 16th February, please remember to bring your favourite pancake topping with you and rsvp to let us know you are coming along. Helena is going to make the batter and let it stand (hot cooking tip for a great pancake from one of our culinary whizzes). We are starting promptly at 6.30pm with talk soon after this time followed by a Pancake supper. Be prepared to stay a little later this evening and note that we are breaking with WI tradition and inviting the gentlemen attending the Shrove Tuesday service & Pancake supper... to our talk/meeting. A first for LWEWI and perhaps for the gentlemen too!
